Finger Lakes & The World Side-by-Side Tasting Series with Experience! The Finger Lakes

July 17, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Certified Sommelier, owner of Experience! The Finger Lakes, and Wine Marketing Instructor, Laura Winter Falk, PhD, as she shares wine from across the world paired with Finger Lakes wines in this limited four-part series. Learn about the different wine regions, the presented varietals, and the stories behind each wine, while experiencing sommelier-curated, locally-sourced food pairings to complement and enhance flavors. These tastings will showcase how the terroir dramatically impacts grape varietals, creating unique and complex flavors from region to region. Each experience is designed to learn for yourselves how Finger Lakes wines hold their own alongside some of the world’s finest.

Austria and the Finger Lakes 

This tasting event will focus on the cool-climate varietals grown in both the Finger Lakes and Austria, featuring Riesling, Grüner Vetliner, and Blau Frankish


Events will be held one Friday per month from 5PM – 7PM, July through October 2020, and will be hosted by Experience! The Finger Lakes and the Coltivare Culinary Center. This series is expected to be both fun and educational as we enjoy learning about the characteristics of wine from both home and abroad. After the tasting, enjoy dinner at Coltivare, where each wine tasting guest will receive a voucher for a complimentary dessert with the purchase of a dinner entreé that evening.


If COVID_19 restrictions are still in place come July, this event will be offered as a virtual experience.
